Worlds Inc. (OTCQB: WDDD), a pioneer that developed the first 3D metaverses, metaverse e-commerce platforms, and technologies crucial to interactive online multi-player gaming technologies, today announces that its debut in the non-fungible token (NFT) arena will feature NFTs from BowieWorld, the world’s first global celebrity metaverse, created in 1999 by legendary musician David Bowie and Worlds Inc. BowieWorld was the first online interactive virtual world (now known as a metaverse) for a celebrity that also featured the first metaverse e-commerce platform where Bowie offered custom avatars, music, art, clothing and other artifacts for purchase.
CrossTower Inc., one of the world’s top rated cryptocurrency exchanges and the NFT marketplace, will be hosting the BowieWorld NFT drops. Worlds and CrossTower will announce dates and details of rare and exclusive BowieWorld NFT drops leading up to the David Bowie World Fan Convention in Liverpool, UK, June 17-19, 2022. Worlds Inc. CEO Thom Kidrin and Ron Roy, co-founder of the pioneering Internet fan club experience UltraStar with rock legend David Bowie, will present “The BowieWorld Odyssey” at the Bowie Convention, where they will discuss their collaboration with David Bowie and Bowie’s son Duncan Jones to execute visionary concepts and create the technologies that significantly raised the bar for fan engagement and experiences around the world, and serve as the basis for the BowieWorld NFT collection.
Thom Kidrin, Worlds Inc. CEO, stated, “David Bowie was one of the first celebrities to recognize the potential of the nascent internet and push the envelope on every aspect of it that was available to him in the late ‘90s. Working with David was an amazing experience that allowed us to flex our creative muscle and help shape the future of the entertainment industry. Therefore, it is most appropriate that our first NFT offering feature BowieWorld, which was a pioneer in metaverse and ecommerce – two very critical elements that laid the foundation for today’s NFT industry.”
